COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís not always a good thing when your reputation precedes you. But the complexity of this powerful wheat wine will give it a Sweet Repute no matter where, when or how your paths meet. Our brewing team painstakingly choreographed each layer of this beerís characteristics, starting with a healthy wheat and roasted malt base and adding clean, fragrant hops. Itís one-hundred percent barrel aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels and bourbon barrels over the course of sixteen months, then blended using carefully calculated ratios for the ultimate final product. The resulting 12.6% ABV liquid pours a bright warm russet with a stubborn ivory head and an intoxicatingly sweet nutty aroma. Take your time allowing the layers of flavors to unfoldÖ Because itíll only get better.

10oz pour at pizza lucce. Honey color with small white head. Toffee and fruit aroma. Big boozy beer with toffee and maple. Good stuff.

Jamesthebrit (298) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Huge orange citrus aroma. Sweet and smooth. Looks viscous. Creamy off white head. Nice hazy orange sunset color. Taste is not so good.... Huge huge huge boozy note. Wheaty. Hint of orange in the finish. Palate is overly boozy... Medium body... I remember this being pretty solid at Christmas but maybe it was on account of the 12 hour drive up from South Carolina... Itís overly boozy not a lot of flavor lingering dull burn on the palate... Drinks like a cheap brandy. Still only the second bad beer from founders Iíve had.... Also the girl on the bottle is hot hot hot!!!

Had this at a recent tasting. Not at all impressed with this Founderís offering. Pretty thin palate.

pours hazy golden orange, off white cream head, mild sediment. Aroma is burnt sugar, caramel, vanilla, maple syrup, licorice. Taste is similar, quite sweet which is fitting - maple syrup in the forefront, not getting a lot of bourbon other than vanilla, oak, lots of booze. Syrupy mouthfeel, abrasive medicinal in the finish. Decided Iím not the biggest fan of the maple barrels, similar off flavor in boltcutter, canadian, etc - cloying sweetness that almost has a licorice quality. This one similar to the 09 nemesis but I remember that one being much better.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
Draft - Rich malts, apricot sweetness. Cloudy orange with a rich beige head. A bit boozy with the apricot with a yeast finish.

rxeight (1523) - Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2014
750 bottle. Yellow amber pour. Aroma of barleywine but not all that sweet. Lots of maple in the taste. Almost an overpowering amount of maple. Not bourbon. Has a bit of astringency.

Pours amber with white head. Nose is a stinging booze, caramel. Maple vanilla in taste...waiting for some barrel but other flavors over power. Age might be in order. Good.
